New and unusual deep-water Conoidea revised with shell , radula and DNA characters

  title={New and unusual deep-water Conoidea revised with shell , radula and DNA characters},
  author={Ka Yun Yu},
In the course of preparation of a new molecular phylogeny of Conoidea based on exon-capture some new species and species with notable morphology were revealed. The taxonomy of these species is discussed and the radula of most of them illustrated for the first time. New genera are described: Comispira gen. nov. (Cochlespiridae), type species Leucosyrinx mai Li et Li, 2008; Pagodaturris gen. nov. (Clavatulidae), type species Pleurotoma molengraaffi Tesch, 1915. New species described: Comispira… Expand
The challenge of integrative taxonomy of rare, deep-water gastropods: the genus Exilia (Neogastropoda: Turbinelloidea: Ptychatractidae)
The aim was to investigate the species limits proposed by Kantor et al. (2001) on the basis of shell and anatomical characters of Exilia, and analysis of DNA sequence data for the cyctochrome c oxidase I gene suggests that Exilia hilgendorfi, previously considered to be a single, polymorphic and broadly distributed species is a complex of at least six species.

Few and far apart: integrative taxonomy of Australian species of Gladiobela and Pagodibela (Conoidea : Raphitomidae) reveals patterns of wide distributions and low abundance
Abstract. The deep-sea malacofauna of temperate Australia remains comparatively poorly known. However, a recent influx of DNA-suitable material obtained from a series of deep-sea cruises hasExpand
Bouchetispira ponderi n. sp. (Conoidea: Bouchetispiridae), a new deep-sea gastropod from temperate Australia
B. ponderi bears notable similarities in several shell characters to Belomitra pacifica (Belomitridae), providing another example of convergence with regard to shell morphology in the Neogastropoda. Expand
Where the snails have no name: a molecular phylogeny of Raphitomidae (Neogastropoda: Conoidea) uncovers vast unexplored diversity in the deep seas of temperate southern and eastern Australia
Although raphitomid snails are a dominant component of gastropod communities in deep seas worldwide, their systematics is still largely tentative. We assembled the most complete sampling ofExpand
Just the once will not hurt: DNA suggests species lumping over two oceans in deep-sea snails (Cryptogemma)
The possible reasons underlying the apparent overdescription of species within Cryptogemma are discussed, which is shown here to constitute a rare case of DNA-based species lumping in the hyper-diversified superfamily Conoidea. Expand
Exon-Capture-Based Phylogeny and Diversification of the Venomous Gastropods (Neogastropoda, Conoidea)
The phylogeny revealed in this study provides a robust framework to reinterpret changes in Conoidea anatomy through time, and is used to test the impact of the venom gland and radular type on diversification rates. Expand


A critical review of Antarctic Conoidea (Neogastropoda)
Although there is a similar relative abundance of conoideans in Antarctic waters to that seen in other well-studied faunas, the low number of conOideans is indicative of the general impoverishment of the gastropod fauna in the region. Expand
Report on the two subfamilies Clavatulinae and Cochlespirinae (Mollusca : Neogastropoda : Turridae) from the China seas
Ten turrid species belonging to six genera of subfamilies Clavatulinae and Cochlespirinae are reported, including two new species, i.e., Comitas parvifusiformis sp. Expand
A new operational classification of the Conoidea (Gastropoda)
A new genus-level classification of the Conoidea is presented, based on the molecular phylogeny of Puillandre et al. in the accompanying paper. Fifteen lineages are recognized and ranked as familiesExpand
Phylogeny and taxonomy of the Kermia–Pseudodaphnella (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Raphitomidae) genus complex: a remarkable radiation via diversification of larval development
A switch from planctotrophic to non-planctOTrophic mode of development occurred at least four times in the evolutionary history of the Kermia–Pseudodaphnella complex, indicating high developmental plasticity of the group. Expand
A new lineage of Conoidea (Gastropoda: Neogastropoda) revealed by morphological and molecular data
This new lineage bears a unique combination of teleoconch, protoconch and anatomical characters previously unknown within the Conoidea, including a translucent, fusiform shell with sculpture of strong axial ribs crossed by spiral cords. Expand
Too familiar to be questioned? Revisiting the Crassispira cerithina species complex (Gastropoda: Conoidea Pseudomelatomidae)
The results demonstrate that even ‘well-known’ and seemingly well defined species may be species complexes and that molecular techniques should be routinely applied to confirm specimen identification, especially as part of resource-consuming studies, such as toxinology. Expand
Toxoglossan gastropods of the subfamily Crassispirinae (Turridae) lacking a radula, and a discussion of the status of the subfamily Zemaciinae
It is concluded that similar foregut arrangement appeared independently in both lineages, and doubts are expressed concerning the importance of these characters in establishing a new taxon of subfamilial rank and therefore the validity of the subfamily Zemaciinae. Expand
Cryptic species in Gemmuloborsonia (Gastropoda: Conoidea)
During a broad molecular taxonomic and phylogenetic survey of the gastropod superfamily Conoidea, 80 specimens of several species of the genus Gemmuloborsonia were sequenced for the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene, demonstrating the presence of five separate entities, while only four ‘morphospecies' could be isolated by visual examination.

Evolution of the Radular Apparatus in Conoidea (Gastropoda: Neogastropoda) as Inferred from a Molecular Phylogeny
The Terebridae, the sister group of Turridae, are characterized by very high radular variability, and the transformation of the marginal radular teeth within this single clade repeats the evolution of the radular apparatus across the entire Conoidea. Expand
Starting to unravel the toxoglossan knot: molecular phylogeny of the "turrids" (Neogastropoda: Conoidea).
The nested sampling used in this study allows a discussion of the classification at various taxonomical levels, and several genera, subfamilies and families are found polyphyletic. Expand
